    Congrats marc! I've been debating what type of Mauser I want. That's a good deal!

    Thanks I have a feeling it won't be my last. There was a K98 at my LGS that I was looking at but it sold pretty quick. Plus this Yugo M24/52c is only half the price.

    It's quite infectious! I got bit by the bug last February and already have 3 rifles left on my wanted list.

    Get as many now and keep her from knowing how many you have....then with the new ones you can say "oh that...I've had that for years...before we were married"

    marc, very nice. A great find. I have a Yugo 48 that I love. Great old Mausers.
    Milsurpshooter, (and anybody else in need of help) Pat McManus wrote a great article called "Gunning Running Past the Wife." You should be able to find it on line. He writes about lots of tricks to get a gun past the wife, and even though they are supposed to be humorous, some of them really work. For example, put a lamp shade on it and tell her what a great thing you found at a yard sale. She will immediately say, "You are not putting that ugly thing in our living room. Put it with your other guns and don't let me see it again." (or something to that effect.)
